On March 12, 2013 at 2355 hours PST, SLCFR units responded to a house fire in the 800 block of Kings Row in Creswell, OR. Arriving units found the attached garage fully involved. The occupants of the house were three adults, two children, a dog, and a cat, were all safely evacuated and assisted by the American Red Cross.
The fire in the garage was brought under control and extinguished soon after by the first due engine company from the SLCFR Creswell station. The roof of the attached garage collapsed during suppression efforts. The manufactured home suffered minor smoke and fire damage while the garage and a Dodge pick-up were a complete loss. Fire damage was estimated at $50,000.
The fire cause and determination investigation revealed an electrical outlet in the garage was the likely cause and the fire has been ruled accidental.
SLCFR crews were assisted in extinguishing the fire by units from Goshen/Pleasant Hill Fire Districts. There were no civilian or responder injuries as a result of the fire. John Wooten Fire Chief Email: email@example.com
